Our Christmas Lunch and Learn
Diana_S, Dec 2023
Leigh was our tour guide and she did an excellent job of keeping my family engaged by providing interesting details about the history of Oakland Cemetery, some of its inhabitants and much of how Atlanta became the city it is today. We also learned about the restaurants and the people and stories that make them special. We highly recommend this experience and could not have asked for a better guide!
Fun in Atlanta

Well Fed With Southern Food And History!
Bernie_K, Sep 2023
We live in Lawrenceville so our knowledge of Atlanta is very limited. We were delighted to learn about Atlanta's fledgling beginnings and the importance of Oakland Cemetery and who's buried there. We really appreciated getting to know more about such a rich history. The food was very good and the portions were incredibly generous. And lastly, Kristin was a fabulous, knowledgeable and energetic guide with a nimble ability to read the room with sensitive topics which needed to be discussed.
The BEST Tour!!!
Barbara_B, Sep 2023

Excellent tour
Stephanie_D, Aug 2023
Kristin was a wonderful host and knowledgeable about the area. We had a great time. The food was excellent. BUT part of the tour took us through the cemetery which was under construction and it was difficult for the wheelchair to get around. Overall, a wonderful tour and definitely recommend this to others.

Anthony_A, Jul 2023
Kristin was amazing. I love how the history was explain and the food choices are amazing. It is a very good combination between food and the history.
Fantastic Tour!
Jennifer_P, May 2023
I had such a great time on the Grant Park Food and Cemetery Tour with Arielle as my guide. She was so friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. It felt like chatting with an old friend, but with a great dose of history, sights and amazing food thrown in. All of the food was delicious, but Six Feet Under was a favorite and definitely somewhere I'd go back to next time I'm in Atlanta. I love that this is a woman owned and operated company and I'll absolutely be booking the MLK tour (and anything else they add) when I find myself back down south.
